2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle. Head is initially average sized, frothy, white, mostly lasting. Body is medium to dark yellow. Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain, cookie), moderately hoppy (grapefruit, apricot, resin), with notes of plastic, vegetables, bile. Flavor is moderately to heavily sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, moderately to heavily bitter, unclean/plastic. Medium to full body, watery/syrupy texture, lively carbonation, lightly astringent, moderately to heavily alcoholic.
I’d tried Breaking Bud here in Maui last month, and could swear I actually rated it, but perhaps it was so awful I just dumped it without going through the pain of reviewing it formally. Well, this one is just is bad, and for similar reasons...lots of plastic and rotting fruit/vegetable odor in the nose, and that nastiness comes back big time in the finish as well. A terrible beer, and after two samples, looking like it could be a trend with this brewery.

Aroma is softly floral with some lime, citrus and bready malt. Taste is bitter grapefruit, some orange peels, resin and a long heavy and mid-dry finish. Superbly delicious of course.

4.7 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Un cervezón difícil de olvidar por su aroma intenso a lúpulo, su cuerpo denso y maltoso y su color ámbar. Cada trago es impresionante y la botella se hace corta.
